Hazel Fencing

Making Our Garden Spectacular

After spending hours painting our fence green, we have decided to put up some hazel screening.

This is how it looked before:

This is our fence before. As you can see, it is a rather ordinary and boring looking fence.

So! We painted it!

We bought Sherwood Green wood treatment from Wickes and used some cheap brushes from Aldi. We didn’t need to use posh brushes as the treatment covered the wood fairly easily.

But we still covered it all in hazel.

And there it is! The hazel fence. Dad bought it from a website online as Wickes were selling one bundle for £70 and Dobbies were selling it for £40 per bundle. That was just too expensive.

Do try to shop around if you can to find cheaper alternatives to the large chain stores.
